Re: Goat Polio & Dexamethasone
I had a buck come down with Polio a couple of years back. I gave him 5cc of Dexamethasone - 1 time a day, for 3 days. It is given to reduce brain swelling. I used FORTIFIED B-Complex only on him and gave him 5cc 2-3 times per day, and he had Naxcel for 5 days. I started backing down on the dosage of B-Complex only when I knew his vision had returned, he wasn't unsteady on his feet anymore, and his appetite was returning. He was given no grain - just baking soda, small amounts of Alfalfa, browse and grass hay. This buck when not in rut, weighs over 200#.
